I was up high in Pioneers and Lost River Range at the end of September/beginning of October. At this time, there were some dustings of remnant snow from the mid-September storm on north faces above ~10,000', but not nearly enough to have a noticeable impact on future stability. Remote weather stations and second-hand roadside observations indicate that additional snow fell up high on 10/7 and again overnight on 10/8-9. Time will tell if this early October snow will be differentiable from the snow that is falling now (10/11), and what sort of impact that will have on stability going forward. My gut feel is that all of this early snow will just end up being mashed together into our base for the season, where it sticks around.
